P.S. That’s RJ’s yaya on the banner, from his latest book release, Lies My Yaya Should Have Told Me.
Over the past three years, there were columns Iâ€™ve written that Iâ€™m pretty damned proud of and there are some columns Iâ€™ve written that were pretty damned to begin with. But, what the hell, I say let it all hang out. After all, whatâ€™s past is prologue. And, in this blog, weâ€™re going to see a lot of prologue going on.
I hope to come out with a second book in early 2009 that collects the last half of my columns from The Manila Times, along with a couple of articles that Iâ€™ve written for MANUAL. In the meantime, Iâ€™ve had requests from family, friends and readers to reprint some of my older columns and other previously published work. So, by way of this blog, I plan to do the following:
1. Post the older columns that havenâ€™t seen print since they were first published;
2. Post my current columns a week after they come out in the Star;
3. Post some articles that Iâ€™ve written for MANUAL;
4. Post columns that, for one reason or another, did not get published.
I also plan to post some totally random stuff as well – recommendations, ramblings, general lunacy. You know the drill.
Lastly, I also hope to use this blog as a sounding board to develop ideas for future columns and articles. So if youâ€™ve got any ideas that you think would make for an interetsting column, please feel free to drop me a line. I would love to hear from you guys. [RJ Ledesma]
